The 2019 Emerging Curator Mentor program is focused on curatorial research and the development of an exhibition at BLINDSIDE under the mentorship of Mark Feary, Artistic Director, Gertrude Contemporary.

The annual Emerging Curator Mentorship is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria and the City of Melbourne. 

Anador Walsh is a writer, curator and arts administrator living and working in Naarm (Melbourne). Currently, Anador is interested in contemporary communication and social theory, and the capacity of performance based practices to reflect on socio-cultural themes and their associated issues. Central to Anador’s curatorial practice is the creation of space for dialogue and relationship building between emerging and more established arts practitioners, as she believes that knowledge is at its most powerful when it is shared.

Mark Feary has worked within the visual art sector for fifteen years in a range of contemporary art centres, universities, museumsand artist-led initiatives, with an emphasis on contemporary art and almost exclusively within the not-for-profit sector. Feary has worked in curatorial and programming roles at Australian Centre for Photography, Sydney; Artspace, Sydney; Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography; Centre for Contemporary Photography, Melbourne; and West Space, Melbourne.
